Seven Quick Takes Friday–Vol. III

  1. So….y’all are probably wondering where I went. I went to the Resort, for five days of in-house hospital fun! It started on Friday at midnight, right after the second Earnest show…I went to go to sleep and then, bam, realized that my heart was going a bit too fast. Checked it with the pulse ox and…it was 180. Oh. joy.
  2. So that meant calling dad and going to the ER, because you don’t really have an option when your heart rate is 180. Fortunately the roads were clear (not like now, ahem, ODOT) so we got to the ER shortly after midnight, to find it very crowded. But a 180 HR will get you seen, post-haste. 
  3. So yes, there we were, in one of the big ER rooms, with a ton of people. The port, of course, didn’t like the first needle so we had to get some hemonc nurses down to get the port to behave. Once we did, meds were given, blood was drawn, and I was nauseous by this point, so we had dilaudid and phenergan on board…and soon I was dead to the world.
  4. So I missed the trip to the CTICU, where apparently they were going to do cardioversion again, but then I vomited, and that re-set my heart. Who knew? So dad and I stayed in the CTICU for a few hours, then I got moved down to C5 (regular transplant/heart center floor), where I stayed until I was discharged.
  5. I’m now on a heart med to keep my heart nice and normal, instead of randomly flipping out. But since I was there, anyway, Dr. K wanted PFTs on Monday. And they were still down.
  6. So that lead to a lovely bronch, with anesthesiologists, because with the heart issues we didn’t really want any new issues. So that meant bronch in an OR, as opposed to the bronch suite. So on Tuesday morning I went down to the surgical floor (three floors down from C5), and we did the bronch thing in an OR, which was sort of fun, just for variety’s sake.
  7. While Dr. K saw a lot of mucus, the cultures aren’t growing anything (and aren’t, currently, showing any signs of rejection), so we’re gonna chalk it up to the cold I had. And I’m going to do some pulmonary rehab again, and I need to lose some weight, because everyone is telling me that now, so I guess it’s time to Get Serious…

So that was my week—condensed into seven quick takes! 🙂

For more (hopefully less exciting) quick takes, you can go see Jen. 🙂
